Becoming Adept!

Hey everyone! Thanks for taking your time to read this.

I'm 16 and a GM of a guild on World of Warcraft. That being said, I do a fairly good job from what i'm told, but i can do better. I looked at our guild website and realized its kinda bland and normal. I wanted to add some flashy stuff to make our guild look better and increase the amount of applicants. So i started searching the forums and found Mottie. There are so many amazing things I would love to add to my site, then i started looking into which ones i wanted. Found the codes stuff, and realized i had no clue how to add anything. I'm pretty good with tech stuff....for my age, and i'm lost. And and all help would be much appreciated. (sorry for the grammar and spelling mistakes, writing isn't one of my many strengths such as modesty)

My website is baneofexistence.abyssportals.com if anyone would like to take a look and see what you would recommend adding and how to do it.

Hi Blooddog!

I try to write step-by-step instructions so it would help if you could tell me where you are getting stuck or lost, maybe I can clarify things better.

Hi Blooddog!

Oh the how to add CSS post is a little dated. There really isn't any need to use the Full Custom CSS anymore. Any additional CSS can be added to the CSS additions to standards tab (Control Panel > Custom HTML & Script > Custom CSS > CSS Additions to Standards tab)

Hi Blooddog!

Adding CSS to the CSS Additions tab automatically adds that CSS to every page on your site. If you have CSS that goes with only one widget on one page, then it might be best to add it to the Free Form Text/HTML widget (while in HTML mode) along with all the other code.

If you need help on vent, I should be able to talk you through it between 6-7 PM EST or after 10 PM EST (when I'm not raiding ;P ). Just PM me your vent info.

O.O You have close to my raid times. But yea, I could really use your help, ihave the widget showing up, but its not pop-ing out with the tooltip. I would also like to know if there is a way to get it so that when you scroll over a boss' status (such as killed) you can get a Pic to pop up.

Ill send you mail with my vent info at 6

EDIT: Well it wont let me send mail to you, so ill post it here and remove it later
